On May 24, 1958, he married Gladys Dux. Gordon farmed with his family and occasionally helped his brother haul canned milk. In 1964, Gordon and Gladys took over the family farm where they resided until the spring of 1991 when they moved to their present residence. Gordon enjoyed spending time in the woods and sawing wood, riding his Gator through the trails, attending auctions, hunting, berry picking, joke telling, and spending time in his shop tinkering and making wood crafts for family and friends. He was a member of the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church of Globe and served as a church officer. He was also a member of the Neillsville American Legion, and the Weston Town Board.

He is survived by his wife, Gladys; five children, Gail (Dan) Lingren, Loyal, Gloria (Allen) Barrow, Brunswick, Ga., Greg (Dawn) Thoma, Gary (Kelly) Thoma, and Gina Thoma, Greenwood; nine grandchildren, Nate, Tom, Marc, Amber Luke, Cassandra (Andrew) Ewald, Bob, Katie and Kaitlin; one great-grandchild, Clara; a sister-in-law, Genevieve Dux; and many nieces and nephews.
